JUFC welcomes young gun Tattersall for 2018

Joondalup United’s preparations for the 2018 PS4 National Premier League (NPL) season continued this week with the signing of hot prospect Elliot Tattersall.

The 19-year-old moves to JUFC from Perth Soccer Club where he was an integral part of their title-winning 20s side in 2017.

JUFC coach Nick Jennings expressed his delight at picking up a player who had attracted interest from other NPL clubs.

“Elliot is an exciting young prospect whom a number of NPL teams where chasing, so I’m delighted to have secured his signature for the 2018 season,” said Jennings.

“He was a standout last year in the Perth 20s team that lifted the league crown and featured on a number of occasion in their first team squad.

“A technical, attacking left sided player, he is a great addition for JUFC as we move forward into our second year in the NPL.”

Having put pen to paper on a deal to move to the northern suburbs, Tattersall said that the chance to play first team football was too good to turn down.

“Nick and I talked about possible opportunities and I trusted him; if I work hard and show promise those opportunities will come,” he said.

“I hope to play a good year of first team football with JUFC and contribute to the club as best I can so that, as a team, we can have a successful and enjoyable season.”

The former Balcatta and Sorrento man is sure to excite JUFC supporters next season with his attack-minded attitude, as well as pace and flare in the final third.
